I need a short portable VHF BNC Antenna but with high gain for railfanning. Any suggesting?
View attachment 93377not high gain,, but boy can you hide a radio with this.
Had both of these at one time - the ScannerMaster stubby and the Radio Shack Race antenna. I found that the cheaper and not as glossy looking Radio Shack antenna waaaaaaay out-performed the ScannerMaster stubby. Of course I didn't expect anything much from pretty much close to a dummy load in size but I was surprised how much better the RS stubby worked versus the much more expensive (at the time) Scanner Master stubby.Generally works quite well, picked up similar from RS at closing

Great for on-scene monitoring
I bought a couple of those for use on ID-51A plus 2 HTs, everything was static. I threw them away. Glad it works for your needs.
